Rosie's Story...
COURTESY POST - CONTACT PJ at bedandbiscuitspet@sbcglobal.net
ADOPTION FEE AND HOME CHECK STILL REQUIRED

Rosie's formal name is "Yellow Rose of Texas" and here is what P.J. knows: In 2007, her owner boarded her at Bed & Biscuit for Thanksgiving and Christmas. After the New Year, he called and asked if P.J. would take ownership of Rosie because he had been trying to sell her on Craig's List and had not gotten any offers he liked. Of course, P.J. took Rosie in! Rosie became depressed at the kennel and P.J. placed her in a foster home. That home now has a puppy in medical crisis and Rosie must go back to the kennel. So, Rosie really, really needs a new foster or a home!

On Rosie's "I-don't-care-if-I-never-do-this-again list" is one thing only: being abandoned by one more family. Rosie has had six homes in the six years since she was taken from the breeder. Five of the families adopted other dogs after having taken Rosie in, she didn't like it and they shoved her on to the next place. Then, a couple who had adopted her got rid of her because the woman wanted a doll-sized townhouse and didn't want a big dog anymore.

Rosie's history shows that she is a sweet, obedient and loving companion. (And P .J. says she is the sweetest ever-if you sit down with her on the floor she wants to get on your lap!) She responds best to gentle, firm leadership and praise/reward training techniques. Rosie is sensitive, and she gets her feelings hurt very easily, so a stern look or command is all that is necessary when scolding. Apparently, the breeder who had Rosie the first ten months of her life may have used physical force and therefore she if uneasy around strange men. Rosie needs love, patience and a little time to trust you in order to learn you love her and won't hurt her.

Rosie is the original spa girl! She loves her grooming time!! And she loves to go for rides in the car, to go to Petco to check out all the new things and to be able to show how well she walks on her leash.

P.J. said Rosie is a real family member. She goes on vacations with a big crowd of family members and loves to travel.

Rosie has an assertive personality. If she is off-leash at the dog park, she thinks she needs to boss the other dogs around, and she will dominate any dogs who challenge her family or her. So, Rosie needs to be an only dog, and she says No Cats!

P.J.'s contact is bedandbiscuitspet@sbcglobal.net . Please contact her if you can help this great dog. Single women? No one will bother you if Rosie is with you! Pass on to anyone who loves the giant breeds!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rosie, a Houston Mastiff dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Mastiff for sale in Houston, or seeking a Mastiff dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Houston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Mastiff breeders who help with Mastiff rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
